By the way, why do people always post these ridiculously outdated and ugly screenshots of Gnome?

People use DEs that aren't gnome? The fuck?
>>
I hated gnome3 until I tried it. Now I run gnome on top of arch and it's wonderful. Even my humanities major friends can use it with no problem
>>
Elementary OS/Pantheon

I don't understand why people hate on it, saying it's pretty but not usable. You can still install whatever you want as far as i've seen

Did the Gnome team finally roll back the retarded removal of features they did on Nautilus? When they removed type ahead and dual panels over some bullshit reasons I just couldn't keep up with their shit anymore.

Gnome.Every one of my installs gets Gnome and i3.

>Using a DE

I tried using DE's but they always feel so bloated to me. I'll stick with tiling window managers.
>>
>>51566491
Elementary OS is a newcomer and I don't see what they offer aside from a shitty pre-Yosemite OS X theme. And there was that drama concerning donations.

>>51566577
I don't know what you mean by type ahead, and as far as I can tell there are no dual panels. I don't understand what the point of dual panels are. Just open another window.

>>51566662
Gnome isn't very bloated and DEs are useful because they take care of a lot of tedious shit for you.
>>
>>51566577

No, they didn't. In fact, the copy dialog for nautilus is hidden in the latest fedora. I like gnome shell, but goddamn they need to stop removing features.
>>
>>51566697
Type ahead is selecting a file in the current directory by typing the first letters of its name when browsing files in a file browser/manager. Even Windows Explorer has this feature but Gnome devs changed it on Nautilus to perform a recursive search in the current folder. I don't remember the reasoning the head dev gave for this and other apps changes in that version but I do remember it was total bullshit.

Good luck with your productivity
